“Great views, Great picnic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Coming down off Trout Creek Pass on US-285 this overlook is situated on knoll with the best view of the entire Collegiate Range. You art still far enough above the valley floor, and far enough away from the beaks to full appreciate the size and grandeur of these peaks.

Plenty of sheltered picnic tables, so bring lunch or dinner (watch the sunset behind the parks).

“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I visited the Scenic Overlook early in the morning. There was a little chill in the air, it was quiet, and the view was spectacular! I would strongly suggest visiting the Overlook to get a breathtaking view of the Collegiate Peaks! The area was very clean with several covered picnic areas. Great photo opportunity!
